I've expanded from advertising soley on craigslist (which you can't knock, because I've gotten TONS of business from it!!) to opening my own shop on Weddingwire.com.
If you're a bride and don't already know about Wedding Wire, you need to check it out. It's a great resource for finding local vendors at a price point that's good for you. What's better, is that each shop can post reviews, so you can read up on past work of vendors - I've got three up so far, and am looking forward to adding some more :)
Since the last time I plugged my calligraphy services, I've updated my etsy listing. You can see that I did job that was navy envelopes that needed white ink - and they came out beautiful! I'm so proud of how they turned out :) I also have a couple more neat projects in the work for brides, including artist-palette place cards, and Christmas tree ornaments that will double as place cards as well. How cool and fun is this?! Awesome!
So if you are looking for affordable calligraphy or know someone who is, I cannot stress enough that you contact me BEFORE JUNE 1st, as I plan on raising my prices to accommodate my graduation from the Museum School of Fine Arts and subsequent Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree. But don't worry! The price increase will not be too dramatic, I promise...and a lot more reasonable than the alternatives :)
I currently have two clients booked, meetings with three more, and am continuing to book throughout May and for this summer. It's so satisfying to be running my own business. Now's your chance to relieve the stress of addressing your own envelopes, and make sure that you get them done and sent out 6-8 weeks before your wedding date!
